Thomas Urquhart (Томас Эркарт)


Epigrams. The Second Booke. № 21. Death maketh us all alike in so farre, as her power can reach


'MOngst all the rites, that Nature can pretend
In Justice, this is chiefest, and a sequell,
Which doth on Mortall principles depend:
That drawing neare to death, we are all equall;
Therefore we otherwise, then by the sense
Should betwixt man, and man make difference.
